A tribute to Johnny & June!

Johnny Cash and June Carter came to town on March 1, 1968 “in a fever” to marry and by the time they left that afternoon they were on the road to one of Country Music’s most enduring marriages. Sadly, Johnny and June are no longer with us to celebrate their 50th anniversary but the community of Franklin plans to celebrate this milestone event in our town’s folklore.

The highlight of the festival will be a two-day outdoor concert in our historic downtown. You can’t get more country than this venue – it’s one block from the courthouse, one block from the railroad, right in front of the sheriff’s office and the jail, and just two blocks from the church where Johnny and June married.

Located in Dowtown Franklin
